Chef Art Smith filled Oprah's dinner table with delightful dishes for 10 years as her personal chef. "In all those years that Art was cooking for me, people would always say, 'Oh, well, if I had my own chef, I would be thin, too,'" Oprah says. "Well, please. Art always used to cook so much food, I would say, 'It's just Stedman and it's just me. My god, Art, you need a restaurant!'"
Now, Art is fulfilling that lifelong dream with the opening of his own restaurant in Chicago—Table Fifty-Two.
